What we do differently

We go the extra mile to help you achieve your career aspirations

Our mission

We connect you with the right people, in the right companies for the right opportunities. To achieve this, we take the time to listen to your aspirations and get to the heart of what makes you tick. We make introductions that are productive, worthy of your time and in-line with your career vision. We manage the whole process, from the initial introduction to the completion of your probation.

Our action plan

We constantly map the market and manage client relationships, so we're always one step ahead in knowing the best job options available at any time. After each conversation, your consultant will prepare an action plan to assure complete transparency throughout the process. From here, we schedule review dates to evaluate progress and develop your personalised plan.

You are in control

We only work with your permission and if the time isn’t right for you, it's not right for us either. We respect any space and time you need to take a step back and make a measured decision about what's best for your future career. By recommending moves that make sense for everyone we've always enjoyed excellent feedback from all those we work with.

The meeting

We conduct face-to-face meetings and keep an open dialogue with you throughout the entire process. We like to do this to ensure you are fully briefed about the company and expertly prepared for any type of interview situation. We offer CV surgeries, ongoing advice, and support with different interview styles and the latest assessment techniques you may encounter.


Everyone deserves feedback; we debrief the company and you after each interview. When it comes to contract negotiations, we know your needs and conditions. The easy part is asking for the correct salary. Our skills lie in securing you the right role. We benchmark your salary and benefits against the market and give you honest feedback on your expectations and experience.

Keep in touch

Our services and support don't simply end when we've placed you. We continue to work with you until we know that you're happy, have successfully integrated into the new company and are on the right path to build your career. We create long-term relationships: and give professional development and advice throughout your career, not just when you’re changing roles.

"I worked with Lynda at 360 Search on my latest career move and must say I was extremely impressed with her approach to recruitment. She is extremely diligent and is dedicated to placing you in a position that matches your background. Unlike many recruiters, she thinks long term, so that both the candidate and the employer will stay the course.

Within 24 hours of my meeting with Lynda she was back to me with a perfect match. One month later, after excellent guidance through the interview process, I was offered that job and now look forward to starting. There's a reason she is #1 on LinkedIn recruiter rankings.

Thanks, Lynda - all the best to you and the team. Geoff"

"I cannot recommend Sarah at 360 Search highly enough. On the 16th of May I contacted her looking for assistance in my next career move. After meeting her for the first time the next day she then went onto secure me the offer I was looking for in my ideal first role by the 28th of May. I found the whole experience fast, efficient and very thorough. Sarah is lovely to deal with and I am very grateful for her assistance.

I would have no hesitation in using Sarah's skills again and recommending her to friends and colleagues."

"Sarah is head and shoulders above other insurance recruiters. She knows the market and more importantly the key decision makers.

I would highly recommend her."

“I’ve known Lynda professionally and personally for four years. 

With both Lynda and 360 search, what you see is what you get. 

It’s that simple.

Conversations are honest and realistic so I as a candidate was clear on my future career path.

Dealing with Derek Fitzgerald in 2017 was the same. When I was given a promise, it was delivered on”.


Fiona Basquil

"I worked closely with 360 Search and Lynda Barnes in late 2017 but have known Lynda for several years, by reputation, through industry connections.  Lynda is a consummate professional with a comprehensive understanding of the insurance industry, knowing instinctively which candidates best meet specific role requirements.  She matches her skillset with a friendly and engaging personality, balancing a candidate's expectations with the needs of potential employers. I highly recommend 360Search, Lynda and her team."
